i need some advice from actual people, not just medical wobsites.|
for the past couple of months i've been excessively hungry, and i also feel like i'm incapable of losing weight. i eat a healthy vegan diet with loads of fruits and veggies, beans, nuts, etc. so i should be getting enough fiber to keep me full, but i'm still hungry all the time.
i've also been doing cycles of p90x since november of last year, but i haven't lost a single. pound. i realize that i've gained a lot of muscle, but (probably) not enough for my weight to be completely unchanged. i've also started running (2.5mi, 3 days/week) to help burn more fat, and i ride my bike over 20mi/week. i recently thought that maybe my body was in starvation mode because i was trying to eat less than 1000 calories/day, so i upped my intake to about 1300 calories, but i'm still not losing any weight. if anything, i think i'm gaining weight. (i weigh myself once every week or so.)
i know that weight loss doesn't occur overnight, but i've been actively trying to lose weight for over 6 months and haven't seen any drop in the number.
any advice, or words of wisdom? thanks.
